Get ready for a revolution in virtual reality: interactive high definition video at up to 4K (at least four times as sharp as Full HD) resolutions.

Until now, immersive virtual reality (VR) environments have had trouble rendering data-heavy video clips at a constant frame rate, meaning jerky playback and headache-inducing lags.

Han Suk Kim, a computer science and engineering PhD student at the Jacobs School of Engineering in California, has developed an efficient algorithm that shrinks high-resolution video content so that it can be played interactively in VR.
